What is your favorite place in the world? Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh painted not one, not two, but three famous versions of his own bedroom!
Vincent van Gogh is one of the world’s most recognized painters. His paintings are bright, bold, and use thick brush strokes. Students research to find out why van Gogh painted his blue bedroom in France three times. What interesting differences do they notice in each version? Students paint a picture of their bedroom, or any special place, in the style of van Gogh’s "Bedroom in Arles."
Choose a sturdy painting surface such as a recycled foam produce tray, cardboard, or wood. Lightly sketch the special scene or design with a Crayola Colored Pencil. Cover the painting area with recycled newspaper.
Paint the thick coat of Crayola Texture It! Tempera Mixing Medium on the painting surface. To paint in van Gogh’s style, make sure the brush strokes can be seen. Air-dry the surface over night.
Add hues to your drawing with various colors of Crayola Tempera Paint. Make sure to rinse the brush well when changing colors. Change the water often. Painting on top of the mixing medium will create a wonderful raised, textured look. Air-dry.
Students present their paintings to the class explaining why they chose their special place and pointing out the details that are important in their work.
